On a recent stay in Northern New Jersey, Aubry and I headed into New York City for the day. I had a 3 o’clock photo shot with Keith Barraclough for The Redhead Project so we figured it was the perfect excuse to explore the city.
It had been to New York City 10 years earlier, to the month and it was Aubry’s first time in the city!
Aubry loves trains and trolleys, buses and subways… public transportation really so this was a fun trip for her.
How’d you like that little jingle to get you pumped for your time in Newport, Rhode Island.
Quaint Homes that are larger than life and surrounded by water on just about all sides Newport, RI doesn’t disappoint; with it’s rolling hill parks, and a taste of old New England everywhere you go, you’re sure to leave with a smile.
Aubry and I visited the real expert on Newport, my friend Niki. She was living there and I couldn’t pass up the free room and friends. She lived right downtown and we walked everywhere, every day for just about a week!

So without further ado, here are my favorite things to do with children while in Newport, RI and the top 3 are just that- my top 3. The others are in random order, well except number 4 I really like number 4 too!
May I suggest looping the point and parking near the far end of the large open field. Visit both the water side and then venture through the field to a large old stable, can you find the tower? And yes it’s a tower you can go up- legally!
Visit Queen Ann Square : Starbucks is on the square and the square itself is a fun place for kids to play : Trinity Church is also on the square : it’s and easy walk to the Newport Tower : walk around window shopping
